whdh here in boston. i want to show you exactly what they are now reporting. these are photos, two photos sent to whdh by a viewer. the first one shows the scene just before, and the other one shows right after the bombs went off on boylston street. you see this first photo here, you see a black bag there along the streets. and then you see afterwards, virtually the same location, the explosion. you see these bags, whdh said they provided these pictures to the fbi as they continue the investigation. they're looking in the pictures to see if it's possible it could be the second bomb. in the first picture they say you can see a bag up to a mailbox, up against the barricade along the marathon route. in the second, which they blurred because it's very, very graphic, there is no sign of the bag. that from our affiliate whdh, the fbi now investigating these photos to see if in fact that is the bag that contained the bomb with the pressure cooker device. fran, let me bring you back in. assess what whdh is now showing is this. >> well, wolf, what will happen is, the fbi, in particular, and

, massachusetts, and what you are seeing is the live video coverage from our boston affiliate whdh, i want to take a moment to listen into their coverage. again, this is our affiliate in boston. let's take a listen to their ongoing coverage. >> i can't confirm that. i'm just observing and telling you what i'm seeing here. whether this is for what happened at m.i.t. or shell or mobile or all of the above, i don't know. but there's an active search from air clearly going on right now. as back here on the ground, the crime scene gets bigger and more and more officers are being brought in, special operations from different towns are being brought in. so clearly it is still unfolding before us. and we are in a safer location now, thankfully, but what a wild night out here for the people who live in these homes. as you can see behind these businesses, it is a residential area. chris lambert who lives not far from here heard bang, bang, bang and happened to turn on the tv and see our reporting and heard more. scary night for the people out here and the police too. in this -- in our business, we do a lot
. >> that is our local affiliate in boston, whdh, with our news, that -- that is that there was a barrage of gunshots. that has been happening as the lockdown was lifted. obviously the potential for civilians in any kind of line of fire is heightened. we have about here before, where there was a standoff and he eluded authorities. hard to say this is the moment where they are getting him. but that is activity that we have not -- that we have not seen that all take. >> we don't know what is happen tlg. >> but what they are rolling out there is, basically the ar mored car for the police. you saw one policeman there to the right, looks like he has his firearm and side arm drawn. there's definite police activity there, and one wonders is this -- >> is this it? >> is this the moment? >> even after they -- let's assume that they apprehend him, dead or alive, does it mean that everything is over? or is there another hunt for a potential people that helped this individual and now his dead brother in all of these acts here? >> right. we just had a briefing from the head of the massachusetts state
on the ground, including the images we put up earlier from whdh. bill, what can you tell us on is that? >> sean, good evening. these are intriguing images. what we believe they show, it appears like some sort of paper bag with the lining of plastic on the inside. let me set the scene for you. this is along boylston street along the finish line. this would have been possibly the second explosion, sean. i'll call it a paper bag for the moment here because that's what it looks like sitting next to this mailbox. there is a preimage, and then there is a post image that is posted on the tv website for whdh, the affiliate here in boston. this would have been about 75, 100 yards down the course from the first explosion, the initial explosion. the second image you see is a pixilated picture. a lot has been blurred out. they describe it too graphic to show on the website or put on the tv station. that's why it has been blurred to a degree. you see the restaurant behind it. if this is true it was the second explosion, this is the kind of image that the police and fbi want to get out to the public because
reporting under pretty difficult circumstances from our affiliate whdh. >>> we're learning more about what's going on but i understand the mayor of boston is speaking right now, thomas menino. let's listen in. >> i'm here with these two priorities for this plan. make sure we do this as respectfully as we can for the victims, their families an all those impacted by last week's tragic event. operate as quickly and seamlessly, without bureaucracy, for business owners and residents who have been affected by the attack on our city. our copley square re-entry plan is a multi-agency effort to maximize all resources, manpower, equipment, expertise of our city teams. once the scene is released to us, the fbi worked with this plan to open up this area to the public. the copley square re-entry plan is a five-phase effort that includes everything from environmental testing, including building assessment to debris removal, utility restoration, eventually full access plan. the deliberate step by step nature of our approach is reflective of our overreaching concern for the health and safety of our citize
. the fbi is examining photos like this from nbc affiliate whdh to see if nylon bags might have been placed in trash bags on the sidewalk to appear less conspicuous. a former bomb investigator says the experts know what to look for. >> they are able to recognize the minute pieces of an article that a civilian wouldn't even know what it was, but a bomb investigator like fbi or atf will say, that's from a clock. that's from a battery. >> reporter: boston police say the area was checked twice for bombs yesterday, but there was no security screening. >> because there is unrestricted access to the race course, simply because it's 28 miles long, people can come and go and bring items in and out. >> reporter: authorities last night searched the apartment of a foreign student who was injured in the blast and seen running away, but they found nothing, and he is not considered a suspect. investigators urge anyone who was at the scene yesterday to send them pictures and videos. one person responding, ben thorndike, who works in a building that overlooks the finish line. he snapped these pictures in ra
's that second spot shown on this picture sent to nbc station whdh showing a garbage bag next to a trash can. while investigators cannot be sure that bag contained the bomb federal officials tell nbc news that is the spot where the second bomb went off. former atf bomb investigator jim cavanaugh said it is obvious to him looking at the pictures. >> large injuries were on the side of it. debris field to the left. some protected areas over on the right side that indicate the blast was to one side of the trash receptacle. this was the scene of the blast. >> reporter: we are also seeing close-up photos of the actual pieces of the bomb. showing the pressure cooker deformed by the blast, one of its lids blown to the top of a nearby building. they are a favorite of bomb makers because explosive pressure builds up before it is released. investigators can now begin to trace down where components were bought since they know the maker of the pressure cooker, the type of rechargeable flashlight batteries used -- made in china, but widely available -- and even the type of wire -- also made in china -- us
and dropping a bag in the same area as the second bomb. this is the same place where the local tv station, whdh, had the photographs. one showing what seemed to be almost a garbage bag or grocery store bag. and afterwards, the explosion that went off. there is a manhunt on right now to identify that person in the video. we are told that the company that manufactured is cooperating. they will try to trace where it might have been sold. everything down to the wires that were used. many of them commonly available. less common may be the circuit board that investigators believe they have been used as a timing device. so, all of that is being investigated, trying to be traced, every, single component part. while investigators are still on the scene, even though it has -- they are going over every inch. i wanted to update you quickly, in local hospitals, at least 14 people still in critical condition. but doctors say they believe all of them will survive. >> a bit of good news. thanks so much. chris jansing live in boston. >>> just ahead, the senate has dealt a major blow to the president's effort to
, watch this. this is fascinating. examining photos like this one from nbc boston affiliate whdh to see if the nylon bags might have been placed in trash bags like that one there on the sidewalk to appear less conspicuous. look at it. look to the smile rising up to the left diagonally from that very spot where that bag was sitting. it's one of many possible leads. certainly an intriguing one the investigators are pursuing. the boy that was lost yesterday, 8-year-old martin richard, there he is. has become the face of the tragedy. of course, he died as i said yesterday. his sister and mother, by the way, are also seriously wounded right now and are right now in a hospital. today we learned the identify of another fatality, 29-year-old krystle campbell of medford, mass. she was with her best friend watching the friend's boyfriend cross the finish line at the moment she was killed in the blast. her mother broke down speaking to reporters today. >> we are heartbroken at the death of our daughter, krystle marie. she was a wonderful person. she had a heart of fwoeld. she was always smiling. i
there to watch the race. that's all i have on that so far. >> we want to rejoin nbc station whdh boston. >> several store front blown out by this blast. it will be up to the fire and rescue people to tell us once their investigation begins. it sure appeared to be right next to the main grandstand next to that cherry picker where the photographer and the commentators are for the marathon. >> this, i'm talking to some of the producers and writers here at the station looking at videos coming in. these injuries will be, we do know they're very grave and very severe potential. potential people missing limbs. so these injuries are just devastating. and hopefully we pray for those affected. we check back in with susan on the phone. >> reporter: knabb . >> reporter: [ inaudible ] trying to get as close to boyleston street. not able to do that. at every turn, there were several guards, police officers turning everyone away. there's an eerie situation going on. there are a few television screens. i can tell you they have gathered around the screens looking at the video we have on our television,
as blankets. but again, this happened next to what we heard the whdh reporter describe as the biggest emergency room in boston on this day every year. it's set up to give emergency, triage assistance to marathon runners. this, again, is the video from the "boston globe" website. we just spoke to the photographer who took it, and you have the first explosion and then to the left, seconds later, you hear the dull roar of the second explosion. all of it taking place at the finish line. as former boston police commissioner bill bratton pointed out, at least it didn't happen at the very moment of finish, as you would have even more people crowded in there. we haven't done this in a while. let's listen in to our coverage over these pictures on whdh, our nbc station, as they search for more explosives in boston. >> -- able to detonate that with a controlled blast. this is what they've been doing. in fact, a lot of our crews out there, janet wu saw a number of officers and investigators going up and down the streets, looking for what else might be out there. >> we'll stay on top of this. for
and to injure fans at the event. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when they may have placed them. there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month. and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 120 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign student injured in the blast has turned up nothing and he is not considered a suspect at this point. yesterday president obama was direct in his characterization of the bombings. >> this was a heinous and cowardly act. and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. we also know this, the american peopl
was this and when it wasn't there so they can get the exact time of placement. >> boston t station whdh has these pictures near the finish line with a large sack next to a mailbox. then, in this shot, taken after the explosion, the large bag is disappeared and investigators are asking the public for help. >> someone knows who did this. cooperation from the community will play a crucial role in the investigation. >> we are lending more of the three victims who died last night. a vigil for 8 martin richard. krystle campbell the 29-year-old restaurant manager is being remembered. as well as a chinese graduate student from boston university who was watching the race with friends. >> a massachusetts official tells use that authorities believe they have identified a suspect and an abc station in boston is reporting a suspect has been arrested but that is not confirmed by abc7 news. the grieving continues in boston with president obama and the first lady heading here tomorrow for a memorial in on of victims. >> thank you. the bay area boy injured in the boston bombing is involving from a new round
died. the gunfire that left a t officer injured. the reports are -- >> whdh tv local coverage in boston. consistent mostly with what we have been reporting with the exception of the visual from the chopper identifying the suspect covered in blood. yet more evidence that he was wounded in this barrage. 200 rounds fired on a residential street last night. enough so that his older brother, fellow suspect suffered what were in the end mortal injuries. did not help that he was run over by thor car driven by his younger brother. pete williams. >> second law enforcement source says we heard earlier they were employing the flash-bangs, the grenade that is make a bright flash and a loud noise. another source said they threw them into the boat. that could explain also the fire. if the fire is still burning or whether they have gotten it out now, we don't know how big the fire was. they did employ flash-bangs. sounds like a funny term but that's what they do. we heard there is a fire in the boat. they said there is still no resolution. >> flash-bangs are devastating in closed quarters. they stun y
it went off. viewer photos sent to whdh in boston show a bag next to a mailbox in front of the crowd. after the explosion, it's gone. a sharon chen tells us now these bombs, they're not very difficult to build, right. >> no, they aren't, liz. at least one of the bombs was inside an appliance you may have in your kitchen but hidden in a backpack. investigators also found a circuit board they believe was used as a detonator. >> these photos give the first look at the deadly device, a mangled pressure cooker that the fbi says was laced with nails, bbs and ball bearings causing devastating injuries. retired fbi agent frank doyle says it's clear the intent was maximum damage. >> you're adding the ability to injure people, kill, mame, those projectiles become just like bullets. >> sources say the bombs were hidden in black nylon backpacks housed inside pressure cookers. authorities say the pressure cooker device are popular among foreign terrorists. one chapter called make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom. seven pressure cooker bombs were used in a 2006 train attack in india, and it was o
might have look like before it went off. viewer photos sent into whdh tv in boston show a bag next to a mailbox in front of a crowd. after the explosion that bag is gone. >>> a boy from the east bay continues to improve in a boston hospital. kpix 5 reporter anne makovec is in martinez where the community is trying to help the young bombing victim. >> reporter: we are talking about 12-year-old aaron hern. he is still in intensive care at boston children's hospital under sedation and his mother posted on facebook last night that he is doing all right relatively speaking. she says the 12-year-old mass opened his eyes a couple of times and has communicated with nods and that he is okay and comfortable but getting frustrated with his lack of ability to communicate so they are trying to keep him calm and rested. he is due for another surgery today. aaron had gone to boston with his family to cheer on his mom catherine as she ran the marathon and he has shrapnel wounds to his legs, one severe requiring more surgery possibly eventually skin grafts. people here in the bay area are rallying
, the before and after pictures from whdh, it shows a light colored bag as you can see in front of the barrier there that was leaning next to a mailbox, which obviously is extremely bizarre, we're looking here at the route of the marathon and then in the second image, which we have blurred just because of the graphic nature of it, that bag is gone. our drew griffin said, look, we know the fbi is looking for a dark nylon bag, but it is possible a dark nylon bag was inside the light nylon bag, making this picture perhaps more important to the investigation. i know you've been looking at these pictures and studying them. what do you see? >> well, a couple of things stand out, one as you mentioned earlier was the mailbox. i think that that proximity of that light colored bag, the black bag that contained the ied, i think there would have been significantly more damage, it might have been tipped over, it might have been on its side. it would have been more crushed than you see in the picture. but it could be the synonymous with the black bag being behind or under the feet of where the crowd was at.
and authorities on the ground. that's whdh. two breaking stories now. that's the boston development. and, again, the ricin development is back here in washington, an envelope sent to senator roger wicker's office confirmed positive the poisonous ricin. we'll follow both of these. we'll take a look at the developments in boston. we'll talk about this breaking news with the fox all-stars when they join me after the break.

around where the package was. the package gone in photo number two according to whdh, that area is obscured because the victims were so badly injured. they didn't want to show those images in that photo. again, very startling and dramatic developments here when you have photos like these provided by viewers, this is exactly what the f.b.i. had been asking for. anyone with pictures, any kind of video from the scene to provide that. television station says and has forwarded those photos to the f.b.i. presumably they are looking at them very closely. >> greta: and viewers who are watching that happened to have been there any photos and video, if they have not looked them through they should do that immediately to help in the investigation. is there any person of interest, any suspect or any indication to anyone? >> no, in fact the saudi national who was discussed yesterday, in fact the f.b.i. and other local and state police served a search warrant at his residence last night, he has been cleared as a suspect. he had been tackled leaving the scene. he had wounds and some thought he
backpack. the fbi is examining photos like this from nbc affiliate, whdh. it shows the marathon route before the second bomb detonated. here is a picture of the same location after the second bomb detonated. sources tell nbc news that the triggering mechanism appears to have had a battery pack and circuit board, elements of a sophisticated system. both elements were recovered at the scene. joining me now is congressman ed markey from massachusetts. one of the people killed, krystle campbell is from your district? >> yes, she is. that is a good indication this goes beyond the city of boston. >> it does. >> this is all of massachusetts. there are tens of thousands of runners but there's a million people watching the marathon. as a result, every single family knows someone who was here yesterday. this is a very special day each year for the whole state. krystle campbell from medford is somebody that is part of the larger massachusetts family. they were all grieving. >> everywhere you go today, you see the faces of sadness. there's not a place where you can look where you don't see people
they are considering is this photo from nbc's boston affiliate whdh. you can see the spot shadow there. the photo appears to show a bag sitting on the curb and after the explosions, the bag is gone. any number of things could explain why the bag is gone. is this a clue, is this a signal, or is this noise? we do not yet know. investigators are beginning to piece together crucial information about the bombs themselves. metal containers and in one instance a pressure cooker stuffed with bits of metal intended to become scraps of metal. they found a lid of a pressure cooker on the roof from the blast. today, a report that new information is available about what was used to ignite the bomb. they say it was the kind of battery that you typically find in little remote-controlled cars made in china and sold by the many thousands. investigators have also recovered a circuit board used to wire the explosives. nbc is being told by investigators in boston now they do have solid leads in terms of trying to find out who did this. it seems like there was real progress in the investigation today, including some
. suspect number one, as he was called, was killed in a gun fight with watertown police last week. whdh anchor and reporter adam williams was on the scene. he saw it all firsthand. take a listen. watch this, his riveting account of what happened. >> i'm behind the car. i'm hearing multiple gunshots. we're with police right now and we're -- we're trying to stay back right now but we are surrounded by police and we're seeing police swarming, guns drawn and we have heard multiple gunshots. i'm actually standing by the car right now. it is not a good position to be in. officers are putting on bulletproof vests. we have police running, all guns drawn around me right now. there are probably ten different cruisers and officers getting out of their cars, guns drawn. they're running you a around me right now. when we pulled up the cars stopped around me. meantime i heard probably 20 gunshots. i'm just staying down, using the car as shelter. i've never in my life been in a situation like this. when he we pulled up, multiple, multiple gunshots. i'm so close to it i can smell the gun powder from wh
. there are police officers at every door we have seen. our affiliate, whdh, says the suspect has put in a separate area within the icu and he has two guards and he is handcuffed to his bed. like many big city hospitals, this hospital is accustomed to having suspects, to having inmates come in for medical procedures. this is not a foreign concept to them. they have done this before. >> reporter: elizabeth cohen, thank you for your reporting. still unclear on all of this. the motive, what is behind this horrible crime. get this, the fbi was warned about one of the tsarnaev brothers two years ago. why not make the day unforgettable? with two times the points on travel, from taxis to trains. you'll be asking why not, a lot. chase sapphire preferred. there's more to enjoy. >>> the investigation into these bombings moves forward. a lot of questions surrounding the fbi's decision to interview the older of the two bombing suspects in 2011. agents talked to him but never took any action even after tsarnaev took a six-month trip to russia. we want to talk about that with our regular political analyst, mr. e
